This kit is awesome. Everything lines up wonderfully for my Chevrolet 3500HD long bed. The guide that holds the bolts in place when feeding it through the frame of the truck is genius.......BUT.....please made the guide slightly longer for the rear bolts, (see photo) because mine fell in the frame while pushing it into position, and it took me 2 hours with a magnetic to fish it out of the truck's frame. Until the manufacturer makes them slightly longer, installers drill a hole in the end of the guide and insert a wire, in case it falls into the frame when feeding it into the frame. The two nuts and bolts over the gas truck will drive you nuts (long bed) if you are not a contortionist, lol, but this has nothing to due to this manufacture of this great kit. I also like the grey powder coat that goes with the B&M Patriot 5th wheel hitch.

The B&W 5th wheel hit is working out great.


The product is made extremely durable. Installation was not as easy as the etrailer video showed. Not because of the product, but because you definently want your truck up on a lift. Between the frame and truck bed was about 3 inches to work with. Squatting under the truck bed to bolt everything together was not an easy task for this old man. I did complete it with the help of my kids. Other than that, it bolted together as advertised. If you're going to do this yourself, do all the prep work before you start. The predrilled holes in the frame,make sure the threads are clean and clear of debris. Follow the instructions and good luck. Anybody need a slightly used truck cap?


Very nice and solid 5th wheel hitch. Very quiet when towing. One important comment: I have a 2019 Chevrolet Crew Cab with 6ft 6 in bed. I am towing a 2019 Grand Design Reflection 5th wheel. Dealership installed the hitch. I seem to have clearance between the cab and 5th wheel when 90 degrees from one another. The 5th wheel hitch overhang will hit the tailgate of the truck when sliding back to locking position. I think its about a 3 inch interference, Make sure you check this by lowering your tailgate before sliding into parking position.


Fantastic customer service from an incredible company. The B&W Components are of uncompromising quality. Perfect fit and finish. Local installers told me 6 to 8 weeks and it was all received within 4 days. Looking forward to a lifetime of memories secure in the knowledge that this hitch will always be a dependable part of it.


Base rails are awesome. It was a job to install them but they’re working great.


I love my B&W hitch. Installation was average and the instructions were very clear with photos along the way. We are a full time RV family and we have pulled across the country three times now on this setup. Very happy with B&W and always happy with the service I receive from e-trailer.


The rail kit appears to be well built and sturdy. The install directions were clear and easy to follow. The only recommendation I'd have on my part would be the nuts for the carriage bolts in the rails. The area above the frame is extremely tight and it makes it hard to get all the pieces on the bolt plus the nut. Instead of a flat washer and lock washer, why not use a flange nut? That would help with the process of working in a tight space. I ended up taping all the washers together and sliding them on the bolt, then putting the nut on. Overall I'm very happy with it though. I believe it will hold up well and last for plenty of years. I've already recommended it to my dad, who's looking to purchase a 5th wheel as well.

Jeep Patriot

I bought these rails along with the B&W Patriot 5th wheel hitch. The entire setup is the best in the business. It is astonishing how quiet the hitch is when I'm pulling my camper. Would highly recommend any products offered from B&W! Plus, you just can't go wrong with eTrailer's customer service! They assisted in ordering the correct rails for my truck and the entire process was a breeze!


The rail works great with our hitch


Works great no issues


Thanks for the quick response. You all have a great day.

2015 GMC Sierra 2500

Very well built and easy to install fast shipping


There were delivery problems as UPS had lost 1 of the 4 boxes. I contacted Customer Service and was not only given the name of the representative but also her direct extension. Lori had to file the claim and stayed on the paperwork until she advised that the replacement was in stock and assured it was shipped. They fixed the problem without any extra work on my part. Great experience and Lori deserves major kudos.


very fast delivery thank you


Purchased a new truck recently and needed a new hitch installed. A local trailer company was going to install it, but the rails we needed would not arrive in time to be installed before our trip. I called etrailer and talked to Ed, who said they had them and could get them to me in 4 days. I placed the order at 5:23 on Monday. They shipped at 6:38 that same day, which is pretty impressive to me. Icing on the cake was that I actually received them on Wednesday. Ed was very helpful and easy to talk to. The only negative was that I had to hold for 20 minutes to get through. Not sure if this is normal or just a spike in calls. Good buying experience for me. Thanks Ed!

2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Beyond impressed with the speed of which my items arrived. Ordered Thursday at about 2pm and was given an ETA of the following Monday/Tuesday. Well, everything arrived two days early. Boxes appear on good condition. Haven’t opened everything yet, but I feel confident everything is 100%. Overall, fairly priced and speedy delivery. Will definitely be using their services again.


We've been waiting due to the bad weather! We are excited to get it as soon as the weather corroborate. Then we will gladly give you a rating.


No comment


Kit is well made. Hardest part was getting the nuts on the bolts under the truck box without a small hand handy. Taped the nut in the wrench and got it done.

Perfect fit. No problems putting it in


Holes didn’t line up with fifth wheel

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Our customer service team should be reaching out to you in the near future.


Arrived a day early. Everything was boxed up good. Installed easy. Hooked up great.

2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Seems to be very heavy duty but not the easiest install. Of course it will be a couple weeks before we actually get to use it.


Very well built product


The product is exactly what I needed. In my area, I was told this item could not be located by the local dealers, here and in numerous cities within 50 miles. I found it on your website and was very happy to order. My local Chevy Dealer/garage was able to install no problem! My only reason for 4 out of 5 stars was that this product was sent in two separate boxes, (probably to ensure "free shipping") which arrived one day apart and I was not given two separate tracking numbers. A little frustration there and required an extra day at the shop, but still exactly what I ordered and paid for. Thank you.

  • What Should The Spacing Be Between The Rails Of The B&W Custom Installation Base Rail Kit
    The B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2506 along with a majority of all the other rail kits that we sell require that you space the rails 22" apart from center to center of the rails. There are a few outliers that custom for specific hitches but the 22" spacing is an industry standard. There are different length rails, which is most likely what you were being told about, but these specific ones are pretty standard. I've attached a short video...

  • What Would be Needed to Install B and W Patriot Slider in 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed
    The B and W Patriot Slider hitch part # BWRVK3270 can be used in the bed of your 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 as long as you install the rail kit designed for your truck part # BWRVK2506. This hitch does not come with rails since different trucks require different rail kit brackets. Sliders are normally needed if the trailer is towed by a short bed truck like you have and if the nose of the trailer is not tapered.

  • Installing Front Rail of B&W Custom Installation Kit # BWRVK2506
    The base rails that come in the B&W Custom Installation Kit for your 2016 Chevy Silverado, part # BWRVK2506, have spacing that is 20-1/2 inches by 22 inches to meet the standard base. If you measure the center of the rear base rail hole to the center of the front base rail holes it will be 22 inches. I've attached a photo of similar industry standard base rails to assist.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 Towing 16k Trailer
    The B and W Patriot hitch part # BWRVK3255 would be a really great option. It has more than enough capacity as it's rated for up to 18,000 lb trailer weight, is made in USA, has a really tight jaw design which allows it to be very quiet and smooth and is very reliable and easy to use. To install it you would need a rail kit which for that I would recommend the custom install kit part # BWRVK2506 as it will install a lot easier than a universal kit without frame drilling.

  • What Can Be Used When Swapping A Fifth Wheel Hitch Over To A New Truck
    If you have the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3270 which mounts on base rails then you can definitely reuse the hitch in your new Silverado, but the fitment for the base rails will differ between the Ram and Chevy so you will have to get a new base rail kit. If you trading in for a 2020-2023 Chevy Silverado 2500 then you'll need the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # BWRVK2505. For a 2011-2019 you'll need the # BWRVK2506 instead.

  • Can Grade 8 Hex Head Bolts Be Used Instead of the Carriage Bolts on the B&W Custom Base Rails
    The B&W Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # BWRVK2506 uses 8 carriage bolts to secure the base rails to the frame brackets. The base rails have 2 square cutouts on each end to accommodate a carriage bolt. The square cutouts minimize movement and allows for you to tighten one side without holding the other. Unfortunately, as the manufacturer recommends using the carriage bolts included in the kit I cannot recommend you substitute them for grade 8 hex...

    Great question. Yes, you can use the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 16,000 lbs # RP30047 with your Eaz Lift rails. The rails are Industry Standard Rails or ISRs.
